What Kind Of Contests, Draws and Prizes Do You Enjoy?
Many authors have had contests and draws on their sites, often coinciding with a book launch, or just to keep their site lively. The standard prizes range from book marks to entire collections. I think it was David Gemmel (Rest in Peace), who included hand written letters with several signed books he gave away as prizes.
Now things have gone even further, with a few authors promising a drawing for an iPad and a couple giving away Kindles!
Now, I'm not so well funded that I could afford a prize like that, but I'm wondering: What kind of contests, prizes and other free stuff do you enjoy?
Are there a few things us authors haven't thought of? Or are the standards (Free eBook, Book, Book mark, etc...), still fantastic?

I think anything free is great. I have been on other author sites where they have contests that ask questions about characters and or situations in their previous books.
